Football - Baxter in fitness battle

Oldham's Jose Baxter is a major fitness concern for the Sky Bet League One game at Peterborough after suffering a groin strain in midweek.

PA Sport Report

With two goals already to his name this season, the former Everton striker could join David Mellor on the injury list. He sustained a hamstring strain in the home defeat to Walsall and remains highly doubtful.

However, James Dayton is expected to be fit despite also being forced off last weekend with a groin strain.

Striker Jonson Clarke-Harris could also miss out after damaging ankle ligaments against Derby in their Capital One Cup clash last week.
